Doney Memorial Clinic
Union Gospel Mission (basement)
318 Second Avenue  Extension S
Seattle, Washington 98104
Phone: 206-622-5177


The Doney Memorial Pet Clinic offers free vet care and pet supplies to homeless and low-income people in Seattle.

Open the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month. (Call for hours.)


"For two hours on the second and fourth Saturday of every month, up to 45 homeless and low income pet owners file into the basement of the Union Gospel Mission at 318 Second Ave. in Pioneer Square. There, a volunteer team of veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and others host the Doney Memorial Pet Clinic.

"The makeshift clinic operates at a kinetic pace. Upstairs, clients take a number and wait with their pets to be called into the basement. There's also an area to pick up donated pet food, blankets, and other items.

"Certain pets require follow-up visits, which may involve a trip to one of the local veterinary hospitals that has partnered with the Doney clinic to treat some of the clinic's patients that have more serious conditions.

"For several years, a local laboratory has provided the clinic's diagnostic services at no charge, according to Dr. Coe.


"Don Rolf has been with the Doney clinic 23 years, scheduling volunteers, ordering supplies, and collecting donations. It's mostly been cats and dogs brought to the clinic, but he's also seen rabbits, chickens, ferrets, and even a pot-bellied pig.

To make a donation: Send a check, made out to Doney Memorial Pet Clinic, to 4351 29th Ave. W., Seattle, WA 98199.

Seattle Humane Society

Bellevue, WA 98005
Main (425) 641-0080
Fax (425) 747-2985


http://www.seattlehumane.org/services/services/lowincome-senior

The Seattle Humane Society provides services to keep people and pets together in King County. Low-income senior citizens can receive a supplemental supply of pet food. People disabled by AIDS can receive pet food, supplies, grooming and veterinary care.

Pet Project

Pet Project, an offshoot of the Pet Food Bank, provides services to individuals disabled by AIDS. In addition to providing economic relief, the program supports the unique power and healing that comes from the connection between people and pets, especially since clients may be housebound and have limited social contact or energy for daily tasks.

Pet Project matches volunteers one-on-one with clients, handling most of their pet care needs on a monthly basis, and enables clients to keep their pets while spending their limited resources on food and other living expenses for themselves. All services and supplies are donated or purchased with donated funds. Pet Project services include:

Free pet food and cat litter delivery

Free pet items such as beds, scratching posts

Free basic veterinary care

Free basic grooming services

Free pet care information

Individuals disabled by AIDS should contact Pet Project at (425) 649-7566 to be considered for Pet Project services. Other organizations that support people disabled by AIDS should also contact petproject@seattlehumane.org if you are interested in collaborative efforts or partnerships. Pet Project is funded in part with a grant from the Pride Foundation.


http://www.seattlehumane.org/services/services/spay-neuter

Plenty of good low cost/no cost spay and neuter help provided on this page.  The problem is it says they are not accepting any public spay/neuter cases now, "We anticipate resuming appointment scheduling later this summer.  Please check our web-site for updates."  Suggest contacting them to see if public spay and neuter services have resumed.  Cats, dogs and rabbits are welcome.

Special Program: Free Spay Surgeries Cats, Dogs and Rabbits!

We are now offering free spay surgeries for any female cat, dog and rabbit who is brought to our shelter with a litter. The animal will be returned to the owner, and the kittens, puppies or bunnies will be placed for adoption.

"We are always looking for ways to reduce the number of unplanned litters", said Dr. Bethany Faulkner, senior veterinarian. "If people have pets that have had a litter, we want to encourage them to bring the mom to us for this free sterilization when they bring in the kittens or puppies or bunnies for adoption so that the problem doesn't repeat."

Make an appointment with this special program, please call us at (425) 641-0080. Appointments are available 7 days a week. There is no charge for surgery and vaccinations are $10.00 - 15.00.

Requirements

An appointment is required for each surgery and can be made by calling (425) 649-7560. All animals must be at least four (4) months of age. We are now open 7 days a week from 2 p.m. - 4 p.m.

One of our major goals is to spay and neuter as many pets as possible, particularly those that are owned by people who have low incomes. We rely on grants and donations to provide the funding for these veterinary services. These animals are also normally in need of flea control, immunizations, and sometimes have other health problems.

We need your help by volunteering to work with a specific low income person. This would mean to assure that their animals are taken to the vets, receive follow-up care, and provide educational materials to them. You can also support the people who do our low income spays and neuters by giving them your business.

Furry Faces Foundation, a.k.a. F-Cubed or F3, is an animal loving, social group of folks whose motto is ‘having fun…while raising money for animals.’ 

None of us can imagine giving up our beloved pet because we can’t afford to care for him/her.  We support the belief that both people and the animals benefit from this partnership.  For some people, the only companionship they have is their pet.

F3 provides support for people who may need assistance to care for their companion animals, and in doing so, provides the community a vehicle for compassionate social assistance as well.

Washington-

http://www.vetmed.wsu.edu/depts-prd/GoodSam/

Washington State University
Pullman, WA 99164-7010


The Good Samaritan Fund was started by WSU veterinary students in the mid-1990s to help animals in need of special care, but whose owners could not afford treatment.  The college is grateful for their donations and the generous donations of many other caring individuals who support this fund. 

Good Samaritan funds are only awarded for treatment of animals at the College of Veterinary Medicine at Washington State University. The fund is used exclusively to treat animals who are ownerless or owned by clients that cannot pay for care due to circumstances beyond the client's control that, ideally but not exclusively, also present a teaching opportunity for our students. 
 
Eligibility
Patients eligible for financial support through the Good Samaritan Fund will be common companion animal species. Such patients will have a need for life saving procedures and a reasonable prognosis for good long-term recovery.
Patients will be either ownerless or owned by clients that cannot pay for care due to circumstances beyond the client's control. Animals from animal control agencies, humane societies, and business entities will be considered owned and not eligible for funds.

Patients without an owner must have a temperament that does not prevent future adoption.
To inquire if your pet may be eligible for financial support through the Good Samaritan fund contact:

Dr. Harmon Rogers, Hospital Director at the link below:
